How to Decorate an Outside Birdhouse With Vinyl

Good morning crafter's Penny here today to show you how to decorate an outside birdhouse with weatherproof vinyl.

I started my project off with this birdhouse many of you have seen advertised on TV. I chose this type because my mother is disabled and this would give her a fun view of some birds. 

This is what is looks like outside of the box. It is made from a pretty tough plastic with a clear backing so you can see inside of the birdhouse from inside of the house. (Not all parts are pictured here)

So next I needed some weather proof vinyl, so for that I went to Style Tech Craft to look at the Tape Technologies vinyl products. These vinyl's are permanent, and weather proof, and for this project I chose the Fluorescent colors FL Series.

I used the following colors on my project:

Red FO5

Pink FO1

Green FO6

Yellow FO3

Blue F07

and not pictured here Orange FO4. To make my flower designs I used a die cut machine, and to make my heart I used a punch. Both worked beautifully with this vinyl. I also hand cut the grass section. 

To start off I decorated the front first. 

You'll notice that the perch has not been added to the house yet, nor has the grass cutout. 

Then I did both sides. It was only after I added the flowers that I added the grass. I started on one side and then worked my way all the way around. The vinyl was not wide enough to make this in one strip so I added a second small strip at the end. 

For the smaller circles on the flowers I used a regular paper hole punch.

After I was finished with the front and sides I decorated the birdhouse roof with die cut letters, and the heart shaped punches. 

After that I added the perch, and the suction cups that will attach it to my mom's window. I hope you had fun following along today, and until next time Happy Scrapping! Love Penny
Pin It!
